New York, July 10, 2018 – Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG), one of the world's leading financial institutions, today announced that it has hired Stephanie Brandley as a Managing Director and Head of Coverage for Alternative Asset Manager clients of its Wholesale and Investment Bank.
Mrs. Brandley, who began her role on July 9 will focus on acquiring new clients and developing business within existing relationships; she will also collaborate with product partners to provide treasury services, asset-based financing, debt capital markets support, asset backed securities products, foreign exchange, and derivative products.
Based in New York, Mrs. Brandley reports to Mark Doctoroff, Global Co-Head of the Financial Institutions Group (FIG), part of the MUFG's Wholesale and Investment Bank.
Mrs. Brandley worked for 35 years at JP Morgan Chase & Co. in a number of positions, including 13 years as a Managing Director in commercial banking focused on growing a portfolio of large alternative investment clients. Before joining MUFG, she spent the past two years as a senior relationship manager with BankUnited, Inc., responsible for building a commercial banking practice with alternative firms.
"With her talent, experience and recognition within this industry, Stephanie is a significant addition to the Bank's global FIG team," said Mr. Doctoroff. "Her track record of identifying innovative, value-added solutions for clients will undoubtedly benefit alternative asset managers seeking thoughtful ideas to address a wide range of financial opportunities and issues. As we put more emphasis on bringing together our transaction banking, corporate banking, and trading businesses across investor clients in the U.S. and globally, Stephanie provides us added credibility and expertise as we move the business to the next level."

Mrs. Brandley began her career with the Federal Reserve after earning a BA from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA.
She is also a founding member of 100 Women in Finance, a global network of professionals in the finance and alternative investment industries working together to empower women at every stage of their careers.
